About

I'm a Yorkshire based photographer who captures people as they really are.

I will do exactly what you ask me to do although of course I can offer suggestions based on my experience if you need some advice. Your wedding is unique and I will treat is as such. I don't have a set template to follow, I go with the flow, take the pictures you want and fit in however suits you best.

How do! So, a bit more about me, “Smiley John”……


I live in Meltham, Huddersfield, my life revolves around my two beautiful daughters.

I was born and raised in Leeds, West Yorkshire

I spent over 20 years of my life riding a skateboard (which I still love doing).

I once made a brief appearance on Street Mate. Davina McCall called me cute. They picked my mate, however, because he was sporting a massive Mohawk hairdo.

I love a cup of Yorkshire tea (milk, no sugar, leave it to brew), thanks for asking.

I never set out to be a wedding photographer - in fact, I was a gym instructor for 5 years – but I wouldn’t change this for the world.

I love people watching, which is why wedding photography is the perfect job for me. That and the fact that I’m quite handy with a camera!
